It is that time again! We are gearing up for this month’s discussion of The Reservoir by John M. Thompson (Tuesday, July 26 right here), but it is also time to give away next month’s BOOK CLUB selection. In August we will be reading another offering from Picador, By Nightfall by Michael Cunningham.
We will be discussing By Nightfall on Tuesday, August 23th on Nicole’s blog.
From the publisher:
Peter and Rebecca Harris, midforties, are prosperous denizens of Manhattan. He’s an art dealer, she’s an editor. They live well. They have their troubles—their ebbing passions, their wayward daughter, and certain doubts about their careers—but they feel as though they’re happy. Happy enough. Until Rebecca’s much younger, look-alike brother, Ethan (known in the family as Mizzy, short for the Mistake), comes to visit. And after he arrives, nothing will ever be the same again.
This poetic and compelling masterpiece is a heartbreaking look at a marriage and the way we now live. Full of shocks and aftershocks, By Nightfall is a novel about the uses and meaning of beauty, and the place of love in our lives.
